The call in the WikiLeaks profile on Twitter calls to join the thousands of people who will carry out the demonstration, “the first human chain to be attempted in the UK parliament; with a clear message: Freedom for Assange”.

The demonstration that will take place from 1:00 p.m. (local time) will constitute a symbolic act to show popular support for the figure of Assange, who represents an icon of freedom of expression and of the press.

According to the organizers of the action, around four thousand people have confirmed their attendance, among whom are multiple political and cultural personalities.

At the same time, this Saturday a rally will be held near the Department of Justice in Washington DC, United States, to denounce Assange's extradition and demand that the charges against him be dropped.

In this sense, the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) pointed out that "regardless of personal opinions, his extradition will have a chilling effect, with all journalists and media workers at risk."

In turn, the president of the IFJ, Dominique Pradalié, urged communicators to express their support for the person who revealed, among other issues, the war crimes committed by the US Army in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In line, Pradalié stated that "October 8 is the time to mobilize and express solidarity to defend Assange's freedom, as well as everyone's right to know."
